Great Lakes

Lake-Michigan-at-Racine-ClaudiaCastro-FlickrOur Great Lakes are invaluable, but vulnerable

Words and numbers cannot express the cultural and economic value of the Great Lakes to Wisconsin and the region. Unfortunately, these magnificent natural resources are vulnerable and face serious threats. Pollution running off farm fields and city streets, sewage overflows, algae blooms and invasive species are only a few of the many threats facing our lakes. Addressing the growing threats to these Lakes is necessary to protect a national treasure and our way of life.
